But I manage to miss stuff regardless. Choices, priorities, stamina, etc. “You don’t beat this festival” — Burt Reynolds in Deliverance. One person, two computers, two cameras, one Red Bull brain, one pair of hands and legs, one pair of lungs…can’t do it all. I missed yesterday afternoon’s big showing of Jennifer Aniston‘s Cake; my next shot is a p & i screening this morning at 10:30 am. Update: Saw about three-quarters of Cake…very good Aniston but who cares about pain management? A bit meh. This morning, to repeat, also includes Manglehorn and The Humbling. A little writing time this afternoon and then we’ll see what develops.

Taken during last night’s rooftop party for Sony Pictures Classic’s Whiplash. I got there, savored the view, took shots. No Damien Chazelle (director) or Miles Teller so I ran over to the next event…sorry.

Mark Hartley, director of Electric Boogaloo: The Wild, Untold Story of Cannon Films, and producer Brett Ratner during last night’s dinner at Barberian’s Steak House. I saw Hartley’s hilarious, fast-paced film in Los Angeles but the embargo didn’t go up until yesterday.
